Note that only Riley Edwards and Billy Brown wore a tie for this occasion. The rest of the men on the front row wore dress shirts without a tie but were buttoned at the collar which was appropriate for the period and the affair.

It is interesting to note that the Brown descendants of Andrew Jackson Brown and Juda Priscilla (Lane) were well represented at this 1946 Reunion. Juda Priscilla died in 1906 at age 59 and her sister, Sarah (Lane) Walker, died in 1923. Juda Priscilla was A.J. Walker’s aunt. She was 13 years old when she came to Texas with her father Alfred G. Lane in 1860.
